       Additional Information  
      Monica Crawford, better known as Nikki, is a passionate young woman whose complicated life has transformed her into the biblical demon Lilith, a half-woman/half-serpentine shape-shifter from Hell. Living in Washington, DC, Nikki and her recovering drug-addicted husband, Stefan, move to New Mexico where they hope to build a new and happy life. But their marriage soon falls apart, and Nikki is led into the dark underground world of exotic dancing and sadomasochism. Nikki's life becomes even more complicated when a rattlesnake bites her after she tries to escape Max, a self-confessed serial killer and rapist. She returns to DC to work at the Babylon Nightclub, and soon discovers that her body is gradually changing, until she eventually transforms into the demon, Lilith. Meanwhile Nikki's best friend, another stripper at the Babylon, discovers that several of the club's exotic dancers have been missing. Celia and Benjamin, a patron of the Babylon, convince Nikki that she is the key to solving the mystery of the missing women, even though they don't know about her shape-shifting ability. Told from a first-person perspective and illustrated, the plot becomes increasingly complex as we follow Nikki and her friends on their dark adventure of murder, deceit, and Nikki's own self-destructive behavior. A mixture of fantasy, science fiction and horror, "The Maidens of Babylon" is a tragic and doomed tale of one woman's journey of self-discovery.
